Themes For Anniversary Gifts

Posted: October 21, 2005

Try as you might, it’s not always easy to remember the traditional anniversary themes. So I’m going to make it easy for you. Bookmark this page and keep a handy reference. Future anniversary posts will take each theme and offer suggestions and helpful hints on anniversary gift giving. Of course I’ll always plant a little food idea with the other themes. Why not? Gourmet food gifts bring every occasion to life.

Anniversary Years & Themes:

1st – Paper

2nd – Cotton

3rd – Leather

4th – Flowers

5th – Wood

6th – Candy

7th – Copper

8th – Bronze

9th – Pottery

10th – Tin

15th – Crystal

20th – China

25th – Silver

30th – Pearl

35th – Coral

40th – Ruby

45th – Sapphire

50th – Gold

55th – Emerald

60th – Diamond

75th - Diamond

Just between you and me I don’t understand why we have to wait until 60 and 70 to get diamonds. Diamond_flowers Seems like that theme should be in the earlier years. Wouldn’t you agree? And what’s with skipping years. Looks like someone needs to come up with more themes. I think I can take care of that!

Designated days, like anniversaries, are important. They are there to honor the person or people, but instead of just a date, it should be a lifestyle. We should be honoring those we love not just on those special dates, but throughout the days, months and years.
Quite awhile ago I found these unique etched mirror
anniversary gifts that have also been a great hit for these special occasions.
